The PDGA Pro Worlds are returning to Emporia, Kansas for 2021 and also moving back in the calendar to a September tee-off.
Today’s announcement of the remaining five PDGA majors for 2021 that would be joining the European Open, United States Disc Golf Championship, College Disc Golf National Championship, and United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships sees a heavy concentration of events in the Midwest.
Princeton, Indiana will host Am Worlds, Peoria, Illinois and Nate Heinold have a joint Masters and Junior Worlds, Tim Selinske US Masters will be in the Quad Cities, and the United States Women’s Championship heads to Madison, Wisconsin.
Every major announced received at least three bids to host the event.
The 2021 Pro Worlds will be the fifth time in six years Emporia has hosted a world championship. Doug Bjerkaas and the Dynamic Discs event team annually puts together the Glass Blown Open, the largest PDGA event in the world, and will hold its final Junior Worlds event in 2020 completing a 3-year agreement. Ricky Wysocki won his first world championship in Kansas in 2016.
“We hosted the 2016 Pro Worlds in my first year on the job at Dynamic Discs,” Bjerkaas said. “Hosting Pro Worlds again five years later will certainly provide a golden opportunity to make it even better.
“The City of Emporia, Dynamic Discs, and I personally take the responsibility of hosting the crown jewel of professional disc golf events in 2021 very seriously.”
